Poetry from within

Upstairs tonight

There’s a hell of a noise upstairs tonight

There’s glasses being raised it must be a sight

The cheers and the laughter are loud as can be

As Mum is welcomed by friends and family

One by one they queue to say hi

The family, her friends so many gone by

Her face is a smile, her eyes are so bright

As heaven is graced by a new star tonight

Her laughter rings out and the hugs are so fine

the love in her soul forever to shine

She dances and twirls with one then another

A beautiful lady a wonderful mother

And as we sit back and imagine this sight

We can’t help but smile with joy and delight

We sit with a glass and we raise one to you

God bless to you Mum from all of your crew

Now all of us here are a wee bity sad

We miss you, we love you and loved what we had

But we will be fine and happy to know

That you are at peace and were ready to go

So tears and sore hearts will stay for a while

As all of us mourn in our personal style

We’ll think of the times when we laughed and we cried

Sitting back in our chairs a bit bleary eyed

So all of our love Mum we love you so much

Always remembered by those who you touched

We’ll chat to you daily and under star light

God bless you and keep you, we love you night night
